Re: Spoke Thread

You are best using a fluteless tap to reform the threads.
I use these all the time on engine casings, namely 6mm and 8mm.
They are much more expensive but are some of my most prized tools I have!

Re: S&S Silver Saxon #8

Looking tremendous Ray, though it might mean that you'll have to bling No.1 up a bit :D
Looking forward to seeing it in the flesh in a few weeks time.... we can then fit your AP Lockheed system on it.

Re: PHIL M ENGS full name?

Yes, the late Phil Manzano.
I had one of his big valve cylinder heads fitted to my Moto Martin Z1 in the 80's. The porting on it was sublime and worked really well.

Re: REV counter

I agree Charlie, EMGO gauges can be a fair amount out. Best sprucing the old ones up. Sorting the damping, refinishing the bodies and fitting some of my gauge face kits can make it really worthwhile. Link to the gauge kits if it helps. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/KAWASAKI-Z1-Z1A-Z1B-Z900-Z1000-KZ-Z1R...
